Boasting approximately 1,000 feet of water frontage on Bringman’s Cove just off Island Creek, a lush park-like setting with lovely landscaping, breathtaking water views, a dock, and a boat ramp, this two-level colonial home is truly a sight to behold—a delightful waterfront retreat that offers the upscale, peaceful lifestyle that buyers desire. The property, which was listed on August 18, 2017, closed on April 12, 2018.

The stunning home, which has an eye-catching brick and siding exterior design features exquisite architectural detailing, including elegant moldings and dramatic ceilings that add a touch of absolute elegance. Large ample windows not only maximize the spectacular water views but also allow abundant natural light to flow throughout the home’s interior spaces, creating a warm, welcoming atmosphere. A relaxing retreat, the stylish living room features hardwood floors, decorative wood ceiling beams, and a cozy wood-burning fireplace. 

A chef’s paradise, the well-appointed kitchen boasts ample cabinetry, sleek granite countertops, and ceramic tile flooring. With a wood-burning fireplace with a mantel, recessed lighting, and ceramic tile flooring, the breakfast room offers the perfect setting to enjoy a meal or sip a cup of coffee in the morning. This delightful space also features wood ceiling beams, which add a rustic, charming touch. Ideal for more formal meals, the elegant dining room is adorned with crown molding, chair rail, hardwood floors, and a beautiful chandelier.

The relaxing family room features a beamed ceiling, recessed lighting, ceramic tile flooring, and access to the waterfront. Exquisite in every detail, the sunroom, which overlooks the waterside in-ground pool and spa, is absolutely delightful. Clearly designed for relaxation, this lovely space features slate tile flooring and multiple glass doors that showcase the views and offer access to the pool. 

The elegant master bedroom, which is located on the second floor, features hardwood floors, decorative crown molding and contrasting custom paint that combine to create a distinctive aesthetic, and a luxurious bathtub. The property also includes a bedroom with a wood-burning fireplace that is conveniently located above the two-car attached garage, as well as a lovely patio.

“This home is situated on a private, deep-water point of land off Island Creek,” says Jane M. McCarthy, the buyer’s agent for the property. “The sellers originally listed the property for $3,700,000, so I feel the buyers certainly paid a fair price for an amazing property.”
